Obituary: Patrick James Kennedy

Patrick James Kennedy
February 4, 1956 - September 22, 2021

It is with heavy hearts we share that Patrick died suddenly and unexpectedly of natural causes on Salt Spring Island, his home of the past 19 years or so. Patrick was well known on Salt Spring for his colourful and talkative nature. He was a great lover of music, good food, flowers, and travel adventures. He cared a lot about how to make the world a better place.

Patrick is survived by his daughter Lyyli Kennedy who was the great light of his life, and three brothers Mike, Nick and Danny.

A celebration of life will be held at the Portlock Park outdoor covered area on Sunday, October 17, 2021 2-5 pm. Service 2-3 ish, Jose Sanchez Cuban band 3 - 5 pm. Everyone welcome. Please bring your own chair. Patrick’s ashes will be spread at a later date on Matilija Creek near Ojai, California as per his wishes.

    Goodbye old friend. I was surprised by the news of your passing. You always seemed to be an active, healthy guy, besides having a bit of a pot, which is something the majority of your peers have as well, including me. lol. I jumped on Google Maps to see for myself the beautiful valley and creek where your ashes will be spread, and it is a beautiful oasis. A wonderful image of your resting place. A great place to swim or just sit on a rock. Rest easy, Patrick.
